Xyron and DCWV Multi Frame Wall Art

11:27 AM SharonCallisCrafts 3 Comments

I hold my hands up and admit that I buy IKEA deep frames by the basket full !, They are so versatile for creating keepsakes and for displaying little treasures.  For this project I wanted to mimic the effect you get my placing multiple frames together on a wall but this piece has all the frames joined together so they keep the form I envisaged when choosing the backing papers.  Give it a try with Xyron and your favourite DCWV stack !

How it's Made

Supplies at the ready!


Strip out all three frames and cut three pieces of cover paper larger than the frame and run through the Xyron 9" Creative Station


Place the cover paper face down on the workstation and the press down the frames 


Trim away the excess but put the cut outs back onto the Xyron backing sheet for using on a future project, no waste !


Ink the outer and inner edges of the frame fronts


Using the back of the frame measure and cut three backing pieces and run through the Xyron 5" Creative Station and cover the frame backs


Cut out all the toppers and elements and prepare for framing


In the centre frame apply a small amount of adhesive to the bottom right and top left corner


place at a slant into the frame against the glass, the adhesive will be hidden by the frame


Hold the glass in place and give depth by using a foam strip around the inside


Fix the back to the frame and your centre piece is finished.


With the other frames use foam pads to raise the toppers and decorate sticking all to the backing and then fixing into the frame.  Use a hot glue to stick the frames together in a stepped formation.
